I spent €5 on a freaking "I love Amsterdam" umbrella that didn't even hold up. Biggest waste of money ever! We walked into the sex show and were given a penis shaped lolly pop. As soon as we walked in it was like a theatre and on the stage were a couple having full on sex. It was very confronting ...
